Tiernan Bradley to bring the year to an end with Spanish inquisition

Tiernan Bradley [1(1)-0] will bring the curtain down on a bizarre 2020 in fitting fashion.

Like a host of Irish fighters in the second half of this year, the 23-year-old welterweight is on the road again – and like those starting out or working their way through the small hall stage the exciting prospect trades leather in a non traditional boxing venue.

The Dublin based Omagh native is off to Spain a country that will host the next installment of the Celtic Clash series and was the venue for fights for Dylan Moran, Victor Rabei, Vladimir Belujsky, Tony Browne and others in recent weeks.

The Steven O’Rourke trained stylist will fight in Malaga on December 20 – and after Dennis Hogan’s world title eliminator with Julian Williams, originally set for St Stephen’s Day was postponed it looks to the be the last Irish action of 2020.

It’s Bradley’s second pro outing. The Conor Slater advised prospect claimed stoppage victory in Poland in October, coasting his way to a first round stoppage against Kornel Cendrowski.

An opponent has yet to be confirmed for his second outing.
